About the Book

In this revised edition, we have examined nature of the ethno-linguistic composition of South Asian ethnic groups and causes of conflict between ethnic groups and states. In case of India the ethnic problem, particularly that between the Hindus and Muslims, has deep historical roots. The Punjab problem is of recent origin. Nevertheless it has erupted with a volcanic gusto. The Tamil problem too is of recent origin and has erupted with no less violence. But the Karachi riots between the Pathans and Muhajir took the whole world by surprise for the degree of violence and brutality. It may be difficult to reach definite conclusions but even then we have tried to find out solution of this crisis. This book certainly helps to achieve clarity considering that there are a number of complex issues involved.
